Thanks Sue and Carol... Guess a bit of planning certainly pays off down there.   Thanks for the info.. Just never talked with anyone down there about accommodations at parks.   This forum is a great place to hang out, for all kinds of camping with our nice PC's. Smile

Camping in Florida in January is like shopping in Time Square the week before Christmas. Not the same as normal, maybe fun but not normal. Wink

Are you saying it is difficult to find open sites without reservations?   Are you also saying it is like shopping on Black Friday?   

We were maybe thinking of Florida instead of the SW for 2014... Maybe not a good idea?

"I don't know if the rubber compound is any different, but I have heard that tires that are in motion (being driven on) will be less susceptible to dry rot.  The reasoning was that the constant flexing prevents the dry rot."

Sounds like what's wrong with my body, no flexing!

 rolling on the floor funny... yes have also heard that... Guess we need to take or PC to work and the store once in awhile?

I Do Agree With You Frank........Totally

Like someone once posted about the 2350's bathroom size... "There isn't enuf room to change your mind" or something like that.  Well, the wife and I are not big people, so the 2350 and its bathroom is quite adequate.... But in saying this, I believe I could mount the toilet paper anywhere in the bathroom and it would be reachable!   rolling on the floor

I have heard that most tire shine sprays are not good and produce sidewall cracking.  I am not familiar with 303 protectorates. 

I keep tires covered in the carport, and just wash them down when I wash the coach.

Only experience with MH tires was 7 years with the Rialta. Rear usually wore out before front, even though front wheel drive. (they seemed to cup after about 3 years).  But the tires were starting to crack after about that time anyway, so they were usually changed after 3 years for wear and cracking.

Yep BandD, my alignment guy said the same thing... Not enuf lub put in the ball joints make them super tight at first, and then later they just wear out per-maturely because of lack of lube.

Ron.. yes... sorry, but I meant the rear trac bar..   Maybe I don't appreciate what all it is doing for me because of the steering problem.  Guess the rear end does behave itself quite well...

Ron.. yes I like to keep those informed that maybe in the same boat!   Smile

As you probably have followed along, so far did the Bilstein HD shocks all around and that helped on the swaying and the bumps.   Before that did the Blue Ox frame stabilizer on the rear.  Am not sure of its effectiveness yet.

For the steering "return to normal" problem, I suppose I could install one of those pricey Paul Harvey steering stabilizers, which would mask the problem.   (Poor little power steering pump must really get a workout with one of those am thinking. My steering wheel turns hard enuf without more springs. )  So I will watch if it loosens up on its own, or I will just return it to Ford.  The steering box replacement certainly made the steering more predictable. The mechanic admitted he wasn't that experienced with the 350 SD when it comes to steering. Guess they may not get that many in there car garage. He has been a friend of mine for many years, and been in the business all his life at Ford. My brother has more experience maybe with the big trucks as when he worked for Ford that is all he worked on. So will let him test drive it when I get a chance.

Guess I started this thread under the correct heading  "Adventure Anyone"!  LOL

Each year we do stay at border towns like Columbus, and even cross there annually to see a doc or so. But that is quite quiet compared what I am hearing about BBNP.  But I imagine with just a river as a border, it is quite the crossing place. We were at one NF near Nogalas two years ago, and the border patrol emptied their patty wagon in the camping site next to us with about 8 seemingly friendly chaps from S. of the border..   Don't know why they sat the boys down on the ground in a circle there next to us, but they did. We always travel to places like this with another couple and never leave home without our sidearm. (Good for 4 legged as well as 2 legged situations that one can come across out there.)  What was interesting is that my buddy and I were just finishing up with some target practice when the patrol pulled up and emptied their wagon next to us... and we were still wearing our sidearms. (It was legal to discharge firearms in that NF we were at.)  They didn't say anything to us, and we didn't ask.

But anyway.... hey thanks everyone for the comments..   Will have to assess if it is worth the drive down there. Was going to spend some time in the Carlsbad area, and thought maybe BBNP would be a good addition to the itinerary.
